I have finally started the process of setting up my new blog.
I am beyond excited & cannot wait until the finishing touches are complete, so I can start adding my posts.
I have always felt so self conscious about the way I look, even to the point of when Ellis was born I'd feel sorry for him having me as a Mum, as I knew I didn't look my best, what with the fact I had a saggy tummy, a double (possible triple) chin & the worst dark circles ever. I'll be honest, my thought process hasn't changed all that much as I still don't feel good enough for him & that's one of my many reasons for starting a blog. I want to prove to myself that I can achieve something, whether it's a small victory of posting my first post, or gaining a follower or two.
I NEED to lose weight & now that I'm finally starting to feel better after a long stretch of pregnancy sickness & gallbladder pain (I'll explain it all in a blog post); I feel now is as good a time as any to start getting my pre-pregnancy body back & hopefully go one step further and try to tone up & become the healthy, fitness mummy I know I'm capable of becoming.
I know Ellis loves me no matter what I look like, but the thoughts I have about how negative I feel about my self-image, will only spur me on at a higher pace, knowing that I'm doing it not only for myself, but for him too, and I believe that's the best motivation around. Catch ya soon - Emmylou x
